Age: 21Position: CAMClub: FC DallasCountry: ChileBest Stats: 82 Sprint Speed, 82 Stamina, 82 AgilityCost: £7.2 million (release clause)Wage: £4,000

Five goals and five assists in Chile proved enough to convince FC Dallas to part with £1 million to sign Pablo Aranguiz in July 2018. The exciting attacker started just three times before the end of the MLS season and failed to register and goal or assist.

Tricky 21-year-old attacking midfielder Aranguiz can be a bargain on FIFA 19 Career Mode costing just over £7 million. The Chilean youngster possesses four-star skill moves as well as pace making him a handful for defenders. 

Benjamin Kuscevic (OVR 71 - POT 81)

Age: 22Position: CBClub: Universidad CatolicaCountry: ChileBest Stats: 79 Strength, 76 Jumping, 71 Standing TackleCost: £4.7 million (release clause)Wage: £5,000

Benjamin Kuscevic played a major part in Universidad Catolica’s title winning campaign, playing 20 times as they won the league by three points. Kuscevic spent a brief period with Real Madrid under-19s in 2015 but a dream contract never materialised.

22-year-old defender Kuscevic was rewarded for his stellar performances with a first international call-up in November, and managers can sign the promising centre back for under £5 million on FIFA 19 Career Mode. The 6’1” Chilean can reach 81 overall and prove to be a solid performer for any team.

Gabriel Suazo (OVR 70 - POT 80)

Age: 20Position: LMClub: Colo-ColoCountry: ChileBest Stats: 76 Stamina, 73 Balance, 72 Ball ControlCost: £4.1 million (release clause)Wage: £3,000

Versatile youngster Gabriel Suazo can play anywhere across midfield and even at left-back, making him a useful squad player for many teams on a budget. Suazo made 23 appearances in all competitions in 2018, contributing just one assist in that time.

Low wages, small transfer fee and 80 potential make Suazo a bargain buy for managers of smaller clubs on FUFA 19 Career Mode. Suazo is a mobile winger with impressive all-round attributes which improve quickly and he can become a key part of most Championship sides.

Francisco Arancibia (OVR 68 - POT 80)

Age: 21Position: RWClub: Universidad de ChileCountry: ChileBest Stats: 92 Agility, 90 Sprint Speed, 88 AccelerationCost: £2.3m (release clause)Wage: £4,000

Francisco Arancibia missed the majority of the season due to a muscle injury however managed 14 appearances, registering one goal and two assists for Universidad de Chile. Arancibia will look to help Universidad de Chile to a higher finish than the third they managed last season.

Rapid young winger Arancibia is a cheap option for clubs on a budget and can be an effective squad player with his pace and dribbling. The 21-year-old Chilean can reach 80 overall making his £2.3m release clause easily profitable.

Brayan Cortes (OVR 71 - POT 80)

Age: 23Position: GKClub: Colo-ColoCountry: ChileBest Stats: 73 GK Reflexes, 71 GK Diving, 70 GK HandlingCost: £4.1 million (release clause)Wage: £3,000

Young Colo-Colo goalkeeper Brayan Cortes has struggled for game-time at Chilean giants Colo-Colo, starting just twice this season. Cortes impressed enough to make his full international debut in October and will look to build on the promising start to his career.

A cheap goalkeeping option who can prove to be a reliable shot-stopper on FIFA 19 Career Mode, Cortes can reach 81 overall making his £4.1 million release clause seem a bargain. Cortes’ strengths lie in his GK Reflexes and GK Diving allowing him to pull of saves some keepers would not.

Pablo Galdames (OVR 71 - POT 80)

Age: 21Position: CMClub: Velez SarsfieldCountry: ChileBest Stats: 87 Stamina, 83 Interceptions, 81 AgilityCost: £6 million (release clause)Wage: £7,000

Having transferred to Argentine side Velez Sarsfield in August 2018 from his native Chile, Pablo Galdames has made just five substitute appearances this season. The Chilean international has a promising future ahead of him and will hope to make more of an impact in 2019.

Galdames is a mobile central midfielder on FIFA 19 with the potential to reach 82 overall. His high work rates and 87 stamina make him an excellent box to box midfielder and allow him to cover the whole pitch for 90 minutes. Managers can buy the 21-year-old for just £6 million on FIFA 19 Career Mode.

Nicolas Ramirez (OVR 66 - POT 80)

Age: 21Position: CBClub: Universidad de ChileCountry: ChileBest Stats: 71 Strength, 71 Jumping, 71 MarkingCost: £2.3 million (release clause)Wage: £2,000

Young centre back Nicolas Ramirez made 14 appearances for Deportes Temuco as they struggled in the Chilean Primera Division. Ramirez was rewarded for his performances with a call-up to the Chile U20 squad although failed to make an appearance.

Capable of reaching 80 overall, 6’0” 21-year-old Ramirez is a bargain on FIFA 19 Career Mode as his release clause is just £2.3 million. Starting out at just 66 overall, managers will have to be patient with the Chilean defender but he will be worth the wait.

Kevin Medel (OVR 68 - POT 79)

Age: 22Position: CDMClub: Universidad CatolicaCountry: ChileBest Stats: 84 Balance, 79 Strength, 79 AggressionCost: £1.9 million (release clause)Wage: £3,000

22-year-old defensive midfielder Kevin Medel struggled at the start of the season, picking up a red card before falling out of favour at struggling CD Everton. Promising midfielder Medel will hope for a better season having returned to Universidad Catolica after the end of his loan.

A reliable central midfield player, Medel can become a regular in many teams if he reaches his 79 potential. He is available for under £2 million at the start of FIFA 19 Career Mode, a bargain signing for any side.

Rodrigo Echeverria (OVR 69 - POT 79)

Age: 23Position: CBClub: Universidad de ChileCountry: ChileBest Stats: 75 Sprint Speed, 74 Strength, 74 StaminaCost: £2.1 million (release clause)Wage: £4,000

5’11” centre back Rodrigo Echeverria enjoyed a consistent season playing in the majority of matches for club side Universidad de Chile. The 23-year-old did pick up two red cards, including two yellows in the crushing 7-0 defeat to Cruzeiro.

Echeverria possesses the qualities to excel in both defence and midfield with 71 short passing and 70 marking. Despite his height, the promising Chilean has the pace to make up for any aerial weaknesses with just 60 jumping. 

Yerko Leiva (OVR 68 - POT 78)

Age: 20Position: CAMClub: Universidad de ChileCountry: ChileBest Stats: 83 Balance, 75 Agility, 74 AccelerationCost: £2 million (release clause)Wage: £3,000

Exciting attacker Yerko Leiva made his full international debut in 2017 but has yet to kick on, making just ten appearances in all competitions. Leiva still managed to register a goal and an assist in his few appearances but will hope for better when the Chilean season restarts.

A tricky attacker who can play anywhere across the midfield, Leiva is an excellent dribbler and a nightmare for opposition defenders. With 78 potential, his £2 million release clause can be turned into a big profit if managers choose to sell him later on in Career Mode.
